2006 Chevrolet Impala SS 4dr Sedan (5.3L 8cyl 4A)


Review

I have to say that this is my favorite car I have ever owned. I have owned BMW 330, Cadillac STS v8 northstar, Mopar 5.7 hemi, Benz e320 and I love the way this car performs and drives. It is the best V8 I have ever driven.

All I can say is I love Chevy and the next car I am buying will be a Chevy Corvette I want more power and performance now.

This car is great and I bought it used with all service records and it's nice. It such a value.

2006 Chevrolet Impala LTZ 4dr Sedan (3.9L 6cyl 4A)


Review

I learned to drive on my impala and have loved it since day one. The only issues its had are power steering which seems to be common but is worth it to own a fun to drive sedan. Since ownership ive put a flowmaster exhaust after market HID headlights and other mods. It makes a pleasant noise when you accerlate. My car now
has 128000 miles and has been trooper. Only complaint is antiquated trans and the engine not being tuned to full potential. 242 hp from a 3.9 seems low when 3.6 now makes 303

2006 Chevrolet Impala SS 4dr Sedan (5.3L 8cyl 4A)


Review

I bought new and have 140k miles so far. I have detected a little slippage in the tranny recently. Other than that, never a problem, just basic maintenance.

Fast, comfortable, sedan. Torque steer is evident and annoying at first. Once you get used to it you know how manage it.

2006 Chevrolet Impala LT 4dr Sedan (3.9L 6cyl 4A)


Review

I have driven this impala for almost 37,000 miles now it had about 35,000 on it when I started driving this car. It completely changed what I expected from a car. I had previously thought that all cars where like the honda pilot aka: uncomfortable however this car with the seat warmers is absolutely wonderful. I regularly commute about 2 hours a day and have very little back pain the whole time. I also took this car on a road trip from Ohio to Alabama and experienced only a small amount of discomfort. This car is surprisingly reliable considering it is the first model of its generation. Some people may think that the stereo is outdated. However, I find it works fine for my needs.


Best Features

The seat heaters are amazing and get very hot they also heat both your back and rear end. I like having the optional fog lights. I find the stereo sounds nice and has plenty of bass. The headlights in this car with the default bulbs are plenty bright and much brighter than the bulbs in the honda crv.


Worst Features

I would suggest having sun-visors that hold up to constant use better. Also built in ice packs in the seat would be nice.

2006 Chevrolet Impala SS 4dr Sedan (5.3L 8cyl 4A)


Review

Had my 2006 impala as for 3 years, every time I take it to the dealer, they want 200 to 300 dollars for Senors, I don't understand what these people want from us. It seem as though I'm rebuilding a car that's not even paid for yet. Please Chevrolet manufacturer, or Vice president , check into this, I'm about to have a breakdown.
